Worlds fastest PRODUCTION car.
The Koenigsegg CCR succeeded the McLaren F1 as worlds fastest production car.
The koenigsegg is NOT the fastest car in the world!! The Bugatti Veyron 16.4 is currently the fastest, most powerful, and most expensive street-legal full production car in the world, with 1001 horsepower, get your facts straight...plz...
Only 2 people in the U.S. have the Bugatti Veyron and they are Scott Storch and Ralph Lauren. The koenigsegg doesnt stand a chance.
